Dragon's Lair Den: Fall Bingo Rolodex Card

Hi everyone! It's me and I'm here to share a quick and easy rolodex card I created for the Dragon's Lair Den blog using this month's featured Francheska Collection.
I started out by printing off a 4"x6" lined and floral digital image from the Francheska Collection Paper which I then cut with my Sizzix rolodex die. I also inked the edges of the rolodex card.


Next I printed the Bingo card, bow band, feather and leaves from the Francheska Collection Elements. I fussy cut all images out and layer out on the rolodex card until I found a placement I liked. Then I adhered the images to the card but left room to where I could glue cording behind it.


Next I added some Crystal Stickles to the feather and leaves and finished off the card with a small button in the center of the flower.


If you have any questions about this project please let me know.


Supplies Used:

Sizzix: Card Telephone and Address Diecut, Cord, Button, Chalk Ink, Crystal Stickles

Crafty Card Gallery: Be Thankful

Hi everyone! It's me and I'm here to share a quick card I created for the this month's challenge over at the Crafty Card Gallery blog. We had to create a card in the theme of Fall which could be either leaves, fall colors, pumpkins or thanksgiving.
I started with a 6"x12" piece of polka dotted cardstock which I folded in half to created a 6"x6" card base. I cut four pieces of cardstock/scrapbook paper down to fit the front of the card which I then adhered to the middle of the card. 


Next I printed off the turkey and "Be Thankful" images. I fussy cut the turkey out and the be thankful sentiment I cut from the whole saying Keep Calm and Be Thankful. I adhered the image to the card and added stickles to the leaf, turkey and acorns.


I adhered a small piece of cardstock to the corner of the card along with the sentiment and a button.


A very easy card other than the fussy cutting. :-) If you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!

As I was cleaning and getting stuff up to take to Goodwill I came across this music jewelry box that one of my step-daughters had. It was missing a drawer but I decided there was potential in maybe altering this later on. Well, almost two years later this is what I came up with.


I started off by taking the doors and hardware off.


Also I pulled out the dirty and stained velvet fabric that was inside each drawer.


I sanded all pieces lightly and added a coat of house paint sample that I had got for free at Lowes.



Next I measured the drawer sides and fronts, sides and back of the jewelry box and cut from the Robin's Egg Blue Glitter CardstockMoss Green Glitter CardstockAwning Spa Glitter Cardstock to fit which I adhered all with Antique Mod Podge.



The inside of the drawers I lined with Aquamarine Sorbet Cardstock which I embossed the bottom with the Geometric Ring folder and added a little lace around the edges.


The door inserts I cut from the Sour Apple Glitter Cardstock and embossed with the Polka Dot folder. I also added Metallic Teal Dew Drops and a sequins to each of the door knobs and drawer pulls.


The back I carefully cut an opening for the music wind up and then adhered the Awning Spa Glitter Cardstock to the back of the jewelry box.  


For the flowers I used Sky Blue Glitter CardstockSour Apple Glitter CardstockGoldenberry Dew DropsIrredescent Classic Glitter Swirl Vellum and a variety of Robin's Nest scrap cardstock to create these beautiful flowers.





If you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also please stop by the The Robin's Nest everyday to vote on my project. All votes would be greatly appreciated.

Dragon'sLair Den: The Witch in the Moon


Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya and I'm here to share my project for this month using the Trick or Treat Collection from the Dragon's Lair Den. I altered a 4 oz can to hold a special treat. :-)


From the Trick or Treat Collection Paper Pack I choose the "purple witch" image which I set my printer on the #10 business envelope setting and printed onto a sheet of white cardstock. I trimmed to fit and  then adhered to the can. I added Diamond Dew Drops to the bottom and lace to the top of the can.


Next I printed Trick or Treat Journaling Cards and fussy cut the witch out which I added a little chalk pastels to her and then lightly outlined her with a sharpie. I added Crystal Stickles to the moon. I set that aside to dry. Next I cut a piece of burlap ribbon to fit a mini October desk top calendar which I adhered to the top of the ribbon, added some bling to two of the edges and glued one corner to the can. The scrap leftover from fussy cutting the witch out I punch three leaves that I crumpled up , inked and adhered to the can along with the witch image. I finished off with sequin, dew drop and cording to make this spooky cute treat holder.

Enter at Your Own Risk

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a  project I created for Eileen Hull's Trick or Treats Art with Heart Challenge and Sizzix Halloween Challenge.
I used the Sizzix Scoreboards XL Die Box Square and the Sizzix Bigz XL Die Country Cottage 3D to create this spooky cute haunted house. 


I decorated an empty spool which had lace wound on it with cardstock, chipboard alphabets, a ghost and moss.


I added a spiderweb sticker from Pink Paislee and scream verbiage that I cut from some scrapbook paper. I also cut from cardstock On The Edge Die Iron Gate which I glued around the top edge of the ATC block along with some moss.



The roof is cut from glitter chipboard and I adhered vellum inside the little house for the windows. The oval Halloween saying is a free image that I got last year from Ephemera Vintage Garden.


The witch is a cut a part which is from the Echo Park's Chillingsworth Collection. Love this collection!!! 



You can open the little house up and add a little tea light too. I apologize for the photos not being the best but I had no sunlight and it was late in the day when I was able to do my photo shoot but I hope you liked what I shared :-)


There is still a little bit of time to submit your projects to both the Eileen Hull's Trick or Treats Art with Heart Challenge and Sizzix Halloween ChallengeI know I cut it very close this month but I've been busy with magazine calls, repainting the dining room which should have been easy but wasn't…the "popcorn" from the ceiling was coming off as my dad was rolling the paint on. Needless to say we had to scrape the "popcorn" off the ceiling and now there is a fine coat of dust all over everything…can we say yuk?!?!? Tomorrow my parents are coming back to the house and hopefully I will not have any more mishaps…fingers crossed.


If you have any questions please let me know.



Supplies Used:

Robin's Nest: Little Friends Ghost
Chipboard Letters, Cardstock, Scrapbook Paper, Moss, Stickers, Vellum, Black Bead
